Mary’s passing deeply saddens us. She had an electric personality that shined through her smile and captivating friendship. Mary was a TRUE Bama fan and loved to stay up to date about her team. She gave freely her love and friendship to all who were Blessed to met her. You’ll go far before you find such a fine person as Mary; they just don’t happen in our lives that much. We will miss her and miss her deeply. But we have many fond memories of Mary to remember and cherish. We were Blessed to have known her and we treasure her memories.

Mary’s love and commitment to the Lord were inspiring. She continued to attend Frazer services even in declining health; we were somewhat aware of her and Patrick’s generosity in contributing to His service. We believed the Lord brought her and Patrick together. Their Hawaii trips and Tide football games were a pleasure to hear about. Patrick’s tireless care and attention throughout Mary’s illness are evidence of his appreciation of a wonderful wife.
Her commitment to family was also an inspiration. They were most attentive in taking care of Mary’s Mother during last day of her life and we recall their traveling distances on many occasions to be with family and many special remembrances they provided for family.
She was a loyal, dear friend and regularly remembered special occasions with beautiful, carefully selected cards. When we’ve had opportunity to do small favors for her/Patrick, they have immediately returned with generosity. We believe it was the same with other friends.
She was a blessing in our lives and will be missed greatly.

So blessed to have known Mary and Patrick since the early 80's. They met and began dating in the Singles Class I taught and through the Singles Ministry of my wonderful wife, Ann, at Frazer UMC--where Ann changed hundreds of lives. Mary is the one who talked me into also starting a class for couples after they married. And get this: I was the best man at their wedding held in the Frazer Chapel. Ann and I will rejoice when we see Mary and Patrick again in eternity.
